Long Weekend Tours

Cyclists touring in Oregon.

An adventure of a lifetime doesn’t always have to last for weeks. Sometimes getting away for a few days will satisfy your need for exploration, or it might even rejuvenate you into planning that other trip you had put to the side. If you’re new to bicycle travel, a long-weekend getaway can help you test the waters and fine-tune your travel style for future excursions. No matter what you’re looking for, Adventure Cycling can lead you there.

We’re excited to announce our NEW suite of Long Weekend Tours — four-day adventures that will get you out experiencing the joy that bicycle travel brings. We have been researching and curating great new itineraries for you to explore, visiting some of our favorite destinations throughout the U.S.

Adventure Cycling Long Weekend Tours are offered in three of your favorite support levels — inn-to-inn, van supported, and self-contained — providing you with the perfect opportunity to get out and ride in any style you want!
